Dr. Yeric will discuss why the world needs new memories, why materials innovation is important to this effort, and how the semiconductor industry can accelerate this effort. Additionally he will discuss Cerfe Labs' memory technologies in this light. (Title: Materials to memory: why and how)
Then Arm Fellow and now Cerfe Labs CTO Greg Yeric presented a SKY talk at this year's Design Automation title “Design and Manufacturing in 2030”. As DAC was (pre-COVID) scheduled to co-locate with SEMICON West this year, Dr. Yeric discussed technology trends that require the combined efforts of the two fields in order to progress towards 2030. He discussed molecular self-assembly and also two example projects at Arm Research: flexible substrate AI chips and Correlated Electron Memory technology.
CeRAM presented at ERI FRANC proposer’s day. Previously a Distinguished Engineer at Arm and now Cerfe Lab’s VP of Research Lu Shifren presented the CeRAM technology that was awarded research funding by DARPA’s ERI “FRANC” program (Foundations Requires for Novel Compute). CeRAM’s Multi-Level Cell (MLC) capability enabled “Beyond von Neumann” type analog neuromorphic computing, a focus of the FRANC program. https://www.darpa.mil/attachments/ERI-DAProposersDay_ConsolidatedSlides.pdf
